Mike Conley (heel surgery) is no longer using crutches to get around.
Conley is hopeful to be ready by training camp of next year, but given the health issues he's experienced over the years, he'll be a risky guy to target on draft day. Mar 14 - 1:22 PM

Andrew Harrison (right wrist) is out again for Saturday's game vs. Orlando.

Harrison had been making the most of his opportunity with Tyreke Evans (rib) and Mike Conley (heel) shelved, but now Harrison has a (shooting) wrist issue that he can't seem to shake. The Grizzlies are absolutely decimated with injuries, and without Harrison, Mario Chalmers is going to be pressed into 30-plus minutes of action.
Mar 3 - 1:41 PM

Andrew Harrison played only 19 minutes during Sunday's easy win vs. the Kings, scoring five points with five rebounds, two steals and one assist.

There were a variety of factors in play tonight, including the lopsided score and the return of Wayne Selden (quad), who logged 17 minutes off the bench. It sounds like Mike Conley (Achilles) is also inching closer to a return, so don't hesitate to unload Harrison for a more promising rest-of-season option.
Jan 1 - 12:37 AM

Andrew Harrison played 24 minutes on Wednesday, going 1-of-6 from the field with a 3-pointer to score four points with two rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

Mike Conley (Achilles) has been ruled out until early January, at the earliest, so Harrison should continue to split PG minutes with Mario Chalmers (six point, six boards in 27 minutes) for the next few weeks. Neither guy is trustworthy in 12-team formats, but at least Harrison isn't tanking your FG percentage over the past month (46.1% FGs).

Andrew Harrison scored a season-high 20 points in a losing effort on Wednesday, making 6-of-9 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs with seven assists, three rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

Mike Conley (Achilles) was out again tonight and it's unclear when he'll return -- he's stated that he won't play until he's 100 percent healthy, and as the losses mount Memphis has even less incentive to rush him back. Harrison barely missed multiple career-highs tonight and he's quietly crept onto the fantasy radar as steals-and-assists specialist. He outplayed Mario Chalmers again tonight, too, and is making a compelling case for minutes on a listless Grizzlies team.

Andrew Harrison started at point guard again on Monday and hit 5-of-6 shots, 2-of-2 3-pointers and 4-of-4 free throws on his way to a season-high 16 points, four assists and two steals in 30 minutes of a blowout loss to the Heat.

Harrison is starting in place of Mike Conley (foot) and has rendered Mario Chalmers useless. Harrison hadn't scored in double figures in his previous four games and scored just three points on 1-of-8 shooting on Saturday. If you somehow starting him tonight in DFS, it was a nice move. But despite starting for the struggling Grizzlies, he's not worth owning in most fantasy leagues.

Ben McLemore earned a start at SG on Wednesday, making 3-of-10 shots to finish with 10 points, two 3-pointers, three boards, one assist and one steal in 27 minutes.

Mario Chalmers (right ankle) and Mike Conley (Achilles) were both out tonight, but interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff could stick with McLemore at SG -- before making a move here, we'd like to see what happens with Chalmers active on Friday. In deep leagues, McLemore maybe be worth a grab in case he's eventually turned loose. After all, he and Dillon Brooks are the only swingmen with guaranteed contracts next season, and the Grizzlies' 7-13 record includes nine consecutive losses.

Mario Chalmers started in place of Mike Conley (left Achilles) on Wednesday, notching eight points on 4-of-9 shooting, six assists and four rebounds.

He didn't have any defensive stats and went 0-of-4 from downtown -- in fact, he made just one field goal outside of the restricted area. Conley is day-to-day which limits Chalmers to streaming and DFS appeal, unless you need a cheap PG in a deep league.
Wed, Nov 15, 2017 11:29:00 PM

Mario Chalmers (knee) played 17 minutes vs. the Blazers on Tuesday with seven points, three rebounds, two assists and one triple.

He was probable with knee soreness, and he played a few less minutes than he normally does. The Grizzlies only have one more game this week and it's not until Saturday, so Chalmers is more of a deep-league handcuff for Mike Conley's owners. As for Conley, he scored 20 points with six assists, two steals and two triples in 31 minutes.

Marc Gasol (ankle) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lakers.

The Grizzlies continue to list Gasol as questionable, but he's yet to miss a game thus far. However, with this being the second game of a back-to-back set against 4-5 Lakers' team, perhaps the Grizzlies will opt to take a cautious approach with their franchise big man. We'll have another update closer to tip-off, but if Gasol can't give it a go, Brandan Wright would be in line for an uptick in minutes while Mike Conley would run the show on offense. Stay tuned.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 02:40:00 PM

Marc Gasol (sore left ankle) will be a game-time call for Monday's matchup with the Hornets.

Gasol will test his ankle during warmups, but he appears to be headed for a true game-time decision tonight making him a risky guy to invest in in daily leagues. If Gasol is forced to the sidelines tonight, Brandan Wright could be looking at 30 minutes as a starter, and Mike Conley would be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense. Stay tuned.
Mon, Oct 30, 2017 06:31:00 PM

Marc Gasol had 26 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and two steals on Wednesday, making 9-of-15 shots including a 5-of-7 mark from downtown.

Mike Conley added 21 points, five rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers, but the Grizzlies' stalwarts didn't get much help -- the result was their first loss of the season. Gasol and Conley are locked into extremely reliable, fantasy-friendly roles as the Grizzlies' twin pillars.
Thu, Oct 26, 2017 12:19:00 AM

James Ennis and Andrew Harrison will be in the starting lineup for Memphis on Wednesday.

Ennis played very well through the preseason, securing his spot in the starting five, so it looks like the starting small forward position is his to lose. Harrison is more of a fill-in starter with Wayne Selden (quad) and Ben McLemore (foot) banged up, and while both these guys see a minor uptick in value as starter, neither one should be expected to command much fantasy value. Joining them in the starting five will be Mike Conley, JaMychal Green and Marc Gasol.
Tue, Oct 17, 2017 02:34:00 PM

The Grizzlies reportedly view Marc Gasol as "untouchable" in trade talks.

Gasol made headlines in August when he hinted to a Spanish newspaper that if the Grizzlies didn't continue to improve that the two sides would have to "revisit things," but sources of Matt Moore of CBS Sports indicate that those comments didn't seriously strain the relationship between Gasol and Memphis. The Grizzlies seem committed to building around Mike Conley and Gasol, and with Gasol under contract for at least another two seasons, there's no need for Memphis to test the market.

Andrew Harrison started in place of Mike Conley (eye) on Wednesday, scoring 12 points with three rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in a home loss vs. OKC.

Conley had a cut above his right eye that swelled up and coach David Fizdale said before the game, "That blow to the head was just too much." It's unclear whether Conley might miss more games, but if he does Harrison will be worth a look for streaming and DFS value.
Wed, Apr 5, 2017 11:12:00 PM

Wayne Selden will start Sunday vs. the Lakers with Vince Carter (rest) unavailable.

Through four starts this season, Selden has only managed to produce averages of 5.0 points, 1.8 boards, and 1.0 triple per contest while seeing around 15.9 minutes a game, so him starting isn't all that exciting. Mike Conley, Tony Allen, James Ennis and Brandan Wright will join him the starting five tonight.
Sun, Apr 2, 2017 02:28:00 PM

Jeff Teague played just 20 minutes on Wednesday, going 2-of-6 from the field for four points, five assists, one rebound and one turnover.

Mike Conley ran wild offensively to open the game and Teague seemed to shrink into himself after that onslaught -- he never found a rhythm offensively, and was outplayed by backup Aaron Brooks. As disappointing as this is for Teague's owners, he's still primed for a bounce-back effort vs. Cory Joseph and the Raptors on Friday.
Thu, Mar 30, 2017 12:32:00 AM

JaMychal Green (left shoulder soreness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against Indiana.

Memphis will be without Green and Marc Gasol (foot) tonight, so the Grizzlies will roll out a new starting frontcourt of James Ennis and Brandan Wright. Zach Randolph will very likely see his minutes in the 30s tonight, despite coming off the bench, and Mike Conley will be working with a robust usage rate. The Grizzlies play again Friday vs. Dallas, and for now, we'll be considering Green questionable for that one.
Wed, Mar 29, 2017 07:50:00 PM

Marc Gasol (left foot strain) has been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup with the Pacers.

This will mark Gasol's third straight game on the sidelines, and with just two games remaining on the schedule for Memphis this week, owners in head-to-head leagues without an IR-spot fighting to advance to the next round may need to seriously consider cutting the three-time All-Star. Zach Randolph should be looking at another start tonight, and Mike Conley will be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense.
Wed, Mar 29, 2017 12:31:00 PM

Marc Gasol (left foot strain) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. Indiana.

Gasol has spent the past two games on the sidelines with this foot issue, and if he's again forced to the sidelines tonight, Zach Randolph will likely earn another start with Mike Conley doing the heavy lifting on offense. After Wednesday, Memphis will only have two more games on the schedule this week, so owners in head-to-head leagues fighting to advance in the fantasy playoffs may need to seriously consider moving on from Gasol. Stay tuned.

Zach Randolph will move into the starting five for Sunday's matchup with the Warriors, with Marc Gasol (left foot) unavailable.

Gasol wasn't even on the injury report today, so it's surprising to see him suddenly ruled out with this foot issue, but the positive takeaway here is that it's not Gasol's surgically repaired foot. Bigs like Randolph tend to get abused by the Dubs' small ball attack, so while he'll see some increased opportunity tonight, he's not necessarily a "must-start" option. Mike Conley figures to do the heavy lifting on offense sans Gasol, and JaMychal Green could be forced into heavy minutes.
